Next up. I am hoping to get a couple more books in before the 31st. I started Hex last night, but wasn‘t feeling it, so I will give the tagged book a go when I get home from school. It‘s going to be a blustery, warm ( up to 12 c) rainy day here. Have a great day, Littens.

Just over 100 pages into #BoneChina by #LauraPurcell now! Not usually a fan of #HistoricalFiction, but this #Gothic novel is really doing it for me. Plus I‘m loving the queer undertones. This is a great read for a dreary day, y‘all!

A dark, gothic, Victorian-era story. The trauma faced by the poor and the restrictions placed upon an heiress.
Despite the horrors, Ruth and the other girls endured while working as seamstresses, I really enjoyed this book.

This book is still so good. I haven't read it in years, but I remember devouring it the first time. This time I was struck by how much there actually is to it, and I took my time. It's interesting seeing which parts of our narrator I still identify with and which parts I don't, as well as which parts of the story are still suspenseful and which parts aren't. Glad I revisited this one.

rubyslippersreads I need to reread this favorite. 2d
jmtrivera @rubyslippersreads It's definitely worth revisiting! 2d

Book 1 in HP winter magical readathon.I modified the rule😲I had to read a 500 pages book, well I read 2 books instead😉A gothic romance, suspense, mystery thriller book.Plot can be predictable but you forget about that because it was beautifully written. It can be boring for some people because it is very descriptive and slow in the action but I loved it.It caused me anxiety at some point. Cheesy end but I didn't care😍3.9⭐️Thanks @mabell

mabell Yay!! I‘m so glad you liked it!! I think I‘m a credulous reader - I didn‘t predict anything 😂 12h
Gissy @mabell I think I read too many thrillers but I suspected immediately that those two characters were involved. When Linda and Philippe escaped I was so anxious in all those pages because I didn't know if they were going to be caught😱That part was so good. I really enjoyed it. They even mentioned Jane Eyre, one of favorite novels❤️Once again, thank you. It was a beautiful novel. 6h

This book cover is GORGEOUS! 😍 I can‘t stop staring at it! Have any of you read this one? It came out in October. It sounds deliciously creepy! Thanks to @HarperBooks #partner for this copy. Checkout the praise it‘s gotten 👇🏼

“An atmospheric and surprising debut…an ongoing theme of misdirection flows throughout, maintaining the tension and suspense.” (Booklist) “[This book is]...for readers fond of gothic-flavored tales.” (Publishers Weekly)

New additions to the lib! I got all these for RM166. Convert that to your respective currencies 😏. If you happen to be in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia in early December check out Big Bad Wolf Books. #bbwkl2019 #klbaca #klwbc2020

Guys!!!!!! I got my cup of stars ✨ ✨✨ It‘s so gorgeous and very well made. I got this beauty off of Amazon for $20 and it is beyond worth buying. I‘m definitely going to buy 3 more but after the holidays because I buy myself too many things hehehe
